Dana, 4/ 7/2008 - 4:20pm "In this discussion of the rage American-Africans feel, will there be room for the rage of other Americans? I was a minority where I grew up, even though my skin is a peachy pink color. Yet I've never found a minority who will acknowledge that I might know how it feels. I moved to a more ethnically diverse area where my head was figuratively bitten off byt a darker skinned fellow because I refer to all males as boys and all women as girls. He assumed a racial bias that I hadn't had, until he vented his rage at me. Now, I am edgy around American-Africans becuase I don't know what colloquialism I grew up with will be found offensive. We all have unique experiences based on gender, skin and geography, among other things. Why do we have to do more than accept that we are each different? Why does there have to be a community summit to expose each other to our rages? I really don't understand why we can't just accept that God gave us each a different place, a different experience and we are all supposed to bloom where we are planted. For Christians, didn't Christ say it all boiled down to love?"
